Is it just me or has everyone lost their banana’s opting for 3D EVERYTHING when it comes to films these days? I can’t believe the amount of 3D movies coming out and quite frankly I don’t care for them at all. Continue reading →
This is the first complete and working version of my Action Game – Howlyand.
Nothing has gone quite to plan and I have discovered that most of the time of a developer is spent debugging. And trawling through pages of ActionScript. Fun. Yay.
This is full of bugs and little errors that I am hopeful I will still get to iron out. The scores and Lives counters arent working and I have an idea it might be CS5 being weird on me and I need to embed the dynamic text font in each panel that it is used. Whole bunches of holding graphics and a hideous colour palette that needs sorting out to go, countdown on.
Anyway, please have a play of my game Howlyland and leave me a comment if you find other things I need to fix…
A complete game. This lastest version now displays your score as you go in real time, animates the card flips, includes sound effects and will display your previous score on the next puzzle.
This game also increases in difficulty in two ways. The first way is that the cards turn over quicker each time you progress to the next level puzzle. The second increase in difficulty is the amount of time the cards are displayed for until they automatically flip back down.
This may seem lame but trust me – to someone just learning ActionScript it feels like a hell of an achievement.
I have now developed my first Flash game beyond what the standard offer is from the text book, into a game with 3 stages of progressive memory match games – and it works!
It took some serious ‘nutting out’ but once I really understood what was going on I found I could do what I had originally planned and create 3 games with a click through progression into one. This is going to hold me in excellent stead now to develop the narrative and then integrate my graphics.
Anyway, now you can click to play and follow through the 3 different puzzles below in this simple matching/memory puzzle game. None of the graphics are mine and the title pages and click through pages are just place holders while I work through the code.
